on marshall and fdr to get this kind of action in place? >> i don't think he bluffed marshall or fdr, but, of course, he was a good politician. he was a great politician. he used to say he didn't like politics, but the approval rating of president was 65%, a number modern politicians would kill for. he was very good. the way he did it, and i'm not the first to discover it, but he had the great gift of being underestimated and how useful it was to be underestimated, and so montgomery could swan around, and churchill could bluster, and patton could be patton, and eisenhower kept it steady because he knew he was in charge. he let other people have the glory and blow off the steam, but at the end. -- but at the end of the day, he was running the show. he was marvelous at it. nothing preabs you to be president, but running the liberation of europe is not a bad preparation.

action. but at the same time, there was no doubt based on his ranking and chairmanship over a period of years, decades e he was a person who always at bottom could be counted on to ensure that this nation was well defended, that we did not make mistakes. and he and senator ted stevens had a unique relationship. and when something really developed that was important for the defense department and it involved a danger to our government or could do damage to the department or they needed something really seriously needed it, often times in this government we can't respond and we don't respond effective lifment they would go to daniel inouye and it would be fixed. because they understood that peace through strength was the best way to avoid war and they felt a sense of great response tobblet ensure that the defense department was not damaged on their watch. and their experience and judgment is such that they could tell the difference between complaints and real danger to america's defense capability. i would just say, mr. president, that daniel inouye has established a record that places

important role. but nothing happened we know without the actions of this man. it was the actions that set everything else in motion. so returning to that. i want to return to that. i also wanted to question what seemed seem to me was one of the main arguments about this case. and that was that it was a great success story about the american legal system you fact that the supreme court could rule in their favor prove that the american legal system was the hero of the case alongside john quincy adams. to which i ask, do you mean the same legal system that was only 2.5 million people in bondage? at that moment. that is the hero of the story. i don't think so. i think we have to go back and look at the rebellion itself, especially looking at those africans who made the rebellion. so what we have here in both history and film is actually very good history from above. history that stresses the likes of john quincy adams. what i wanted to do was write a different kind of history. what you call history from below. whose history is a? was rebellion was a? what does it mean to us now? those are que

this response to call for more legislative action on gun control. >> they want to focus on the debate on new laws and new prohibitions and i'm saying that is the wrong debate. that is their solution. i believe a better solution is school safety initiatives. one of those options being an armed presence that we have in one-third of the schools. >> seems pretty likely they are going to oppose any legislative agenda, that looks like stricter gun laws. what are the chances of congress actually passing anything new in gun legislation? >> my guess is they will eventually pass something but anyone looking for quick action doesn't understand the dynamics of the gun debate remain basically the same. i do think there has been movement toward more gun restriction. gallup did a poll recently and asked how effective they thought certain approaches would be. over 50%, 53% said increasing security at schools and at the bottom of the list, under 50%, more restrictive gun control t is not, at this moment, a certainty that gun control will pass. it might pass as part of a who will lick thing. again, they are p
about this. not everyone will agree, no one, no one plan of action, that everyone agrees, we don't want a repeat of what happened in newtown, connecticut. or milwaukee, wisconsin. or aurora, colorado. and those are just three from this past year. there are others since january, and, of course, many before that. so what? we just brace for the next one, the next time? where will that be? will it be minneapolis? new orleans, will it be your city? you're, we're angry, we're hurt, we're frustrated, but i think most of us believe what the president said at the memorial for the teachers and babies as the massacre in newtown, co tol anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. no single law, no set of laws, can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. but that can't be an excuse for inaction. surely, we can do better than this. >> so tonight, we want to do better. let's look for better. and let's start with two men who know all about guns. lou pa

actions. the cfcb has said the authority to shed new light on the credit reporting industry about which we do not know much in many ways and write new rules of the road. as one reason why the cfpb is so important. consumers are entitled to one free copy each year, one from each of the three bureaus of they choose to do that, they find only one in five consumer's request a copy of their credit union report in at any given year. last year 8 million consumers disputed items enter their credit report challenging the accuracy and enter one way or the other, even though each american who is in the credit system, as most americans are, they each have their credit reports, one for each one of the bureaus. on one credit report, an error can affect that consumer's ability to access credit. a former colleague of mine recently contacted my office. his wife had passed away earlier this year. when he applied for a mortgage was denied because one of his credit reports listed him as deceased. when he called the bureau to tell them he was still alive, he was told the error would take 30 days to correct. th

by signing on to online actions and stuff, but for parents with kids, changing policies at schools can be an accessible thing, joining pta's or talking to the school board about having integrated pest management so kids aren't exposed to pesticides on playgrounds, that's been successful. there's a huge movement to get safer, healthier foods into schools and they just revised the school lunch guidelines, but also you could go organic, you could go local and there are schools in berkeley and in the bay area really making some amazing strides and ensuring safer food practices, universities could do the same thing and that would be huge because that's such a large population as well. cleaning products in the schools, don't we want particularly these little kids who are more vulnerable to be less exposed to the kinds of cleaning product chemicals that might not be on the labels of those products being used, so schools can be a really targeted place and an accessible place for people to see change happen. there's a network there, hopefully you have like-minded parents to work with around the
